The area is more than 132,000 m2. “You take the 42-story Place Ville Marie tower, you put it on the ground and you have a very nice hospital,” explains Philippe Gribeuval.

The foundations of the future hospital rest on 540 piles with a diameter of 1.5 meters and a depth of 21 to 30 meters. “In 2023, this will be the largest project of its kind in North America,” said Michelle LeBlanc, Pomerly's project director.

More than 500 people are working at the construction site. At the peak of the project their number reaches 1000. During the heat wave, workers started their day at 5am instead of 6am.

Ultimately, the Vaudreuil-Soulanges hospital employs more than 3,800 people.

We need to start recruitment immediately. » He did not expect Surroit or Anna-Laberge – from nearby hospitals – to leave staff to Vaudreuil-Soulanges.
